Join Denise and Meadow Linn to ignite your creativity and share your unique spark with the world. Whether you’re a published author, a frequent journal writer, or someone who only picks up a pen to write thank-you cards, this workshop is for you. With carefully-crafted activities that are fun and sometimes outrageous, you’ll ignite your inner muse to unleash a wellspring of creativity. From wandering through the rose gardens of the Capitol, to touring museums and galleries, to sipping locally roasted coffee and craft beer, at every corner you’ll find inspiration for your photography and your writing. In a safe, loving, and supportive environment you’ll be encouraged to share your words and your photos. You’ll learn foolproof strategies to captivate your audience with your first sentence and how to wow with your gorgeous pictures.

In addition to honing your writing, you’ll view the world in new ways through the lens of your camera (point-and-shoot, dslr, or iPhone). No experience necessary. Only through seeing in new ways, will you expand your world. You’ll learn how to not only see things differently, but also how to experience your surroundings from multiple perspectives. Taking photographs informs your writing. And, writing informs your photography. In this workshop you’ll learn the rules of photography and you’ll learn when and how to break them. In addition to learning how to compose a photograph and how to get the most out of your device, you’ll also learn which photo-editing apps are best and how to use them to make incredible images.

At the completion of this weekend retreat, you’ll have a content you can use to start a blog, write a magazine article, or use as the basis for your next book or presentation. And, you’ll go home with strategies for using social media to share your work.

No experience necessary. You do not need to be a writer or a photographer to participate in this workshop. The focus of the weekend is igniting creativity to live a richer and more colorful life. We’re using photography and writing as mediums for creative expression in this workshop, but you can live creatively in a myriad of different ways. In this workshop you will gain tools to to tap into your hidden potential to manifest your dreams.

I really can’t explain in words how much this weekend meant to me. Especially spiritually! I felt like I was in a cave and now I’ve moved out into the sunshine. It is amazing at how much I’ve accomplished since I got back. I feel like the inspirational floodgates are wide open!! Your workshop was the key!

I’ve been to dozens of writing workshops over the years. Hands down the best was with Meadow and Denise. They introduced tools & prompts that have transformed my relationship with my writing and made the process more enjoyable and exciting. I highly recommend this workshop. It’s worth traveling to attend. Additionally, I haven’t had so much fun taking pictures or editing in forever. Thanks for helping reignite this love of mine.

Ignite Your Creativity was so fun and educational! Denise and Meadow are excellent teachers, who makes things easy to understand and truly help to unleash the creative genie that resides in all of us. I had so much fun during the workshop, meeting wonderful people,
and learning new skills in photography and creative writing. I am able to use what I have learned in business, and in my personal life. What a gift….to unleash my creative genie!!
